Patti says I'm nice!

This has me laughing so hard that my morning coffee practically came out of my nose. The very awesome Patti-O awarded me the "Nice Matters" Award (there's an icon, but I can't figure out how to post it, what with the lost coffee and all), celebrating the way I and several others spread niceness through the blogsphere.

I'd be flattered and touched by this declaration of my niceness, if it hadn't come right on the heels of a longish series of discussions with my agent, editor, and publicist about whether or not I should leave the F-word sprinkled through my manuscript. In the end, we decided that those F-bombs weren't worth going to the mat for, and substituted something more, well...nice.

I never dreamed I'd win an award for our decision! Thank you Patti-O!

(Now I'll step back from the keyboard and await the long stream of comments protesting this award and demanding that Patti reconsider :) )

You know, I think that if there's a memoir that includes dating stories, there NEEDS to be the f-bomb sprinkled in there. You know, especially when there are dates at Ethiopian restaurants with totally whacked-out dudes and you sit there and think, "what the F kind of episode of PUnk'd am I in, since I'm not even famous? What the hell is this guy's problem?"

(smile)

I wholeheartedly agree! I think you're very nice. ALMOST nice enough to be from Minnesota. ALMOST.

I'm curious to see what the substitute for the f bomb will be, congrats on the award you deserve it!

Patti said...

Ha! i use the f word in life...real honest to goodness life, and i don't even have to be drinking to have it roll right out...so you can imagine my surprise at being nominated. ~snark!~

but, you have been very nice to me. i can't vouch for the others ;)

If idolatry was allowed, I'd totally have a shrine to you. But since I like the 10 commandments, I'll just satisfy myself with agreeing with any positive award you receive.

You ARE nice! And since I've actually met you, I can say that! But, holy crap, that is soooo funny about the f-bombs. Ha ha ha.
